The committee appointed at the last Diocesan Convention to take into consideration the subject of Sunday-school instruction, and to report to this Convention such measures relating thereto as may be deemed expedient at this time, beg leave to present the following:

It is but a repetition of a well-recognized fact, to make the statement that the progress of Christianity has been, not a little, impeded by a neglect of duty on the part of those whose office it is to lead and direct, as well as with those whose duty it is to follow.

We have every reason to believe, that in the early centuries, the Church, by a true recognition of the reciprocal relations and duties which bound clergy and people together as responsible and intelligent servants of God, accomplished the work committed to them by the simplest and best means. We must recognize the fact, and that by painful comparison, that in other years, there was a unity of action and purpose in the Church, that in many respects is sadly wanting to day. The fact that there is a royal priesthood with its duties and responsibilities, a priesthood to which we all belong, has come in a great measure to be regarded in the light of a theory rather than a state of intelligent activity, and, while it is true that we have reason for thanksgiving, that during the past few years our branch of the Church Catholic has sought, and that not without success, to call out into usefulness the activities of laymen and women, yet, the grand work has but begun; it must become more comprehensive. The mother, busy with her round of household duties, the father, the provider for and the divinely constituted head of the family, must be brought to realize that they are the servants of Almighty God, and that not simply in those duties which mark them as members of the Church, but in those which comprise the life and reality of the home; that there must be that unity and concerted action, which recog. nizes the fact that the family is a part of the Church of God, and, that those whom God hath constituted the heads and overseers of these relationships, have duties to perform and responsibilities to sustain, which, when rightly
